Futures Fins introduces environmentally friendly stand-up The RWC (reclaimed wood composite) Keel is an environmentally friendly biocomposite-based fin that meets, and in some aspects exceeds, traditional performance demands. The new fin is made from a wood-plastic composite manufactured by Green Dot Bioplastics. Futures Fins came to Green Dot looking for an
Additives in Wood Products—Today and Future - DiVA portal the wood material, or plastics in combinations with wood residues to create new types of wood–plastic combinations. The global wood industry is, for example the largest user of adhesives; about 80 % of all wood and wood-based products involve some form of bonding and 70 % of the total volume of adhesives produced is.
The History and Future of the Plastics Economy Stanford Woods Oct 25, 2017 Plastics are inexpensive and pervasive, but also degrade slowly and damage critical ecosystems. Stanford chemist Robert Waymouth discusses changes in incentives and technologies to create a more sustainable future for plastics.

There's No Great Future in Plastics Flash Forward Dec 12, 2017 Rose: So in this future, plastic is banned. All plastic! Which is… a lot of stuff. Take a look around you right now — there's probably tons of plastic. Natural materials were overexploited, of course wood but also a lot of whale products so whale oil and baleen and bone was used to make all kinds of products

Wood–Polymer Composites - ScienceDirect The book concludes by looking at orientated wood-polymer composites, wood-polymer composite foams, at ways of assessing performance and at the range of current and future applications. With its distinguished editors and international team of contributors, Wood-polymer composites is a valuable reference for all those
"The Future is Plastics" Foretold in "The Graduate" - Microdyne Plastics Rubberized materials and plastics were used years before the movie the Graduate. In those days many considered it a cheap and undesirable material. Much of it cracked easily or was without form. However, in a few years, the detail of plastic toys was better than metal or wood. But it also became much cheaper. So when
Molding the future - Washington Post Campana is currently making customized braces using his own proprietary blend of low-temperature plastic. He hopes this can help dogs with anterior cruciate They were often made from wood, steel and leather, and movement was frequently difficult for patients. However, war veterans returning from WWII pushed for
Standard-compliant development of a design value for wood–plastic The development of a design-value for wood–plastic composite (WPC) cladding is feasible and it can be derived from normative natural and accelerated weathering to account for uncertainties within the cladding product system, such as size effects resulting from small test samples, and future large-scale applications.
Wood: a Material for the Future? CNRS News Aug 8, 2016 Chemistry is also seizing upon this millennia-old material, using cellulose microfibrils to make optical and electronic films just a few nanometers thick; and the most abundant molecule in wood after cellulose, lignin, is a natural polymer that is a good alternative to petroleum, notably in plastics manufacturing.
Premium Beauty News - Is wood the future of plastic? Oct 30, 2017 Sulapac's wood made packaging won the Luxe Pack in green Award in the Packaging Solution category and the fully biodegradable jars of the Finnish company made a real splash at the latest edition of Luxe Pack Monaco.

The future of plastics: reusing the bad and encouraging the good Nov 19, 2017 Future proofing plastics. Plastics are, chemically speaking, long chains or large cross-linked structures most commonly made up of a framework of carbon atoms. For a long time, we have been using bio-derived plastics - naturally occurring materials such as animal skins including leather, gut and wood.
Solved: Automobiles Of The Future Will Most Likely Be Manu Automobiles of the future will most likely be manufactured largely with carbon fibers made from recycled plastics, wood pulp, and cellulose. Replacing half the ferrous metals in current automobiles could reduce a vehicle s weight by 60% and fuel consumption by 30%. One impediment to using carbon fibers in cars is cost.
